Gordon’s Cup

Gordon's Cup cocktail with cucumber, lime, simple syrup, gin, salt, and pepper

Gordon’s Cup is a crisp, refreshing cocktail from the late, brilliant mixologist Sasha Petraske. It’s the entry point for a whole family of more-savory cocktails, like Gordon’s Breakfast.

Preparations of the drink differ; some folks prefer to muddle the lime in the drink glass for a more pungent lime scent on the sip, while others prefer to muddle the lime in the shaking glass for more even distribution of lime flavor in the drink. For the Gordon’s Cup, we count ourselves in the latter camp; for Gordon’s Breakfast we prefer the messier, more fragrant presentation of limes smooshed in the glass.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the lime, cucumber, and simple syrup in a shaker. Add ice and gin, and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled short glass, top with more slices of cucumber, and sprinkle with the pinches of salt and freshly-ground black pepper.
